      Can you lend a hand?  GET STARTED TODAY

Recommended Posts

just discovered an aircraft that is missing 2 100 gallon (internal) wing tanks. Going to add them but can't remember what the unit of measure is for their capacity

Kg? Lbs?? liters??

somebody remind me!!??!!??

TIA!

I think it depends on how you put the reading mode or in km or miles directly the game transposes it to the European or English measure.

In the plane_data.ini the data are always metric and in kilogram.

For recalculation use this values:

1 litre AvGas=0.72 kg                  1 litre JP-4 jet fuel = 0.82 kg

@Gepard is right. What's more, all the .ini files don't change according to your game's settings except the "options" file, obviously.

good, now that we've got the volume/weight figured out, the next question is feeds...

this is how I have the tanks now:

Depends on datas you have. If you know order of using tanks do it realistic. If you don't know I'm using tank the closest to CG as last. First fuselage tanks that are far from CG, then wings.

I believed that the simulator itself when changing the measurements changed everything from heights of meters to feet to gallons and gallons. Now I see that it is not like that.

Internal tanks are used from highest to lowest ID ..  tanks which are used simultaneously (like wing tanks) should have the same ID

esperto: every measurement in the game has ALWAYS been metric;
